intervention by a healthcare worker trained in this technique.

Promoting Engagement in Treatment for Substance Use Illness

5. Healthcare providers should systematically promote patient initiation

of care and engagement in ongoing treatment for substance use illness.

Patients with substance use illness should receive supportive services

to facilitate their participation in ongoing treatment.

Withdrawal Management

6. Supportive pharmacotherapy should be available and provided to manage

the symptoms and adverse consequences of withdrawal, based on a

systematic assessment of the symptoms and risk of serious adverse

linked with ongoing treatment for substance use illness.

patients diagnosed with opioid dependence and without medical

contraindications. Pharmacotherapy, if prescribed, should be provided

in addition to and directly linked with psychosocial

treatment/support.
